Ground Zero Emergency K9 Training

Ground Zero was founded in 2016 by legendary football coach Barry Switzer & his wife, Oklahoma native Becky out of a great desire to positively impact the shortage of highly trained canine and handler search and rescue teams.
Oklahomans have a reputation for being generous, friendly caring people willing to do anything to help a neighbor. This “Oklahoma Spirit ” shines through even the darkest of tragedies, including the bombing of the Oklahoma City Murrah building in April 1995 and.. READ MORE

Rotary Taught Me Things I Did Not Know That I Needed to Know

by Franci Hart

What could be more boring than a program on the Amazon distribution system. I was fully prepared to leave early when this program was announced. And I am so glad I did not.

Instead, I was fascinated by the logistics that are necessary to deliver my package on time. And so glad I stayed for the entire program.

Rotary programs frequently surprise me and almost always inform me. Few civic
organizations can offer Mayor Holt’s unabashed enthusiasm for our city or the legal insights of our state’s Attorney General. And I loved hearing Lee Allen Smith’s memories. (He sold his very first radio ad to my father.) And Russell Perry was monumental.

Always glad to receive an update on our Zoo and the OK Hall of Fame. The program on Not Your Average Joe and their work with special adults gave me hope for my grandson who is a Downs child.



September 2023 Teacher of the Month

Judíth Verónica Huerta Morfín, English Language Learner and Bilingual Teacher at Taft Middle School, will  be introduced by Kathy Williams. 

Lost and Found

The Rotary Office has a pair of sunglasses that were left at a Rotary meeting several weeks ago. 
If you think the sunglasses are yours, please call the office, identify them, and they will be at the Tuesday meeting, or in the Rotary Office. 

Advertising Space Available 

 Advertising support makes it possible for Club 29 to publish news and information critical to our members, such as meeting notices, speaker schedules, and other crucial communications. Your message would be seen by our community's most prominent leaders and gain incredible exposure on the world wide web. The advertising revenue pays for the software we use to design and distribute the newsletters as well as Club 29's website hosting, so your support is important to all members.

There are a few ad spaces available, but filling them is very important for our club’s member communications. If you are interested, you may find more information here or
 contact the Rotary office.
